Affordable Wedding Venues in the Philippines

indoor wedding

Not everyone has unlimited funds for their wedding. So, for those who have to plan a wedding on a budget, it’s important to find a vendor that provides the lowest price tag without sacrificing quality.

You may be tempted to buy a wedding package (saving you from having to search for all the vendors you need for a wedding). While some packages really are convenient and can save you a few thousand pesos, some packages are so padded with mark-ups that you’re better off finding more affordable vendors yourself.

Finding affordable wedding venues in the Philippines online can be difficult since most venues don’t publish their rates publicly. While a call to the venue can get you’re their rate cards, it can be difficult getting an immediate answer.

However, we’ve done our research and found several low-cost and affordable wedding venues in the Philippines. Check them out below and see if these venues you’re your budget!

How Affordable is “Affordable”?

Before we list down seven affordable wedding venues, we have to say a few caveats. First, prices on this list are subject to change without notice. These venues may have increased their rates since these rates were posted, so expect that the venue may still fall within our range of “affordable,” but a few thousand pesos more than what’s posted.

Second, “affordable” is a subjective term; a Php 50,000 venue may be affordable to the average Filipino, but a Php 500,000 venue is technically affordable to the likes of the Sy or the Gokongwei family. When we say “affordable,” we mean venues that are below or equal to the average venue cost at weddings.

Moneymax claims that weddings may cost as low as Php 236,000, with budget-friendly wedding venues costing as low as Php 35,000. According to wedding industry expert websites The Knot, the reception venue should take up to half the entire budget. So, if we were to put that into a Filipino perspective, a venue budget should cost no more than Php 118,000 if you’re looking for a low-cost wedding starting at Php 236,000.
 

1. Plaza Ibarra

Ibarra’s Party Venues and Catering offer multiple venues in Quezon City, Tagaytay, Pasay, and Manila. They also have a separate catering service if you’re looking for catering services only. Their Facebook page, Ibarra’s Party Venues and Catering, provides wedding packages ranging from Php 165,000 to Php 260,000.

While there aren’t any published rates on the venue alone (you’ll have to contact them through their website for a quotation), their Facebook page indicates rates for Plaza Ibarra in South Triangle, Quezon City. From December to January (peak wedding season), the venue has a rental rate of Php 60,000 regardless of whether you’re booking the venue for lunch or dinner any day of the week. For the rest of the year, the venue costs Php 60,000 on Fridays and Saturdays and Php 30,000 on Sundays to Thursdays.

2. Hacienda Solange

Hacienda Solange is an events place in Tagaytay perfect for affordable garden wedding venues outside Metro Manila. Equipped for both outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions, it’s a great choice for those looking to trim their costs by having both ceremony and reception in the same area.

While I couldn’t find the price for the venue alone, I added this to the list because I felt like its smallest package, their Prime Wedding Package, was a steal. For a party with at least 50 guests, Php 108,888 can get you:

  • Use of the wedding ceremony and reception venue
  • Buffet catering
  • Overnight stay for 15 people
  • Wedding ceremony set-up
  • Ceremony flowers
  • Reception flowers
  • Program Emcee
  • Flower pieces for the female bridal party
  • Lights and sounds
  • Bubble and fog machine
  • Projector and white screen
  • Tiffany chairs
  • Mahogany table
  • Venue styling
  • Professional waiters
  • Bottomless coffee

What’s also good about it is the fact that it has no corkage fees for food and drinks (except for lechon), so you are free to add more food carts and other services without additional costs. It may mean a smaller wedding party, but you’re taking care of nearly all the details you need for your wedding.

3. Bayview Park Hotel Manila

In the heart of Manila, Bayview Park Hotel is a three-star hotel providing you with a strategic location close to many churches in the city. According to Female Network, they offer venue-inclusive packages that are perfect for the couple on the budget who want the allowance to tweak the inclusions to meet their preference and limited funds.

Their Civil Wedding Package starts at Php 81,888 (Php 86,888 if you want to turn your set lunch or dinner into a buffet) for a party with 50 guests. Its inclusions include:

Their Classic Wedding Package costs more but is still within the affordable wedding venue range. Starting at Php 91,700 (Php 99,200 for buffet catering) for 50 people, couples can get a stylish but low-cost wedding that won’t break the bank. Inclusions for this package include:

  • Mercedes Benz bridal car
  • Use of venue for the reception
  • Sword & Drinks parade

Ten minutes away from Bayview Park, the Aloha hotel is another option for affordable wedding venues within Metro Manila. The three-star hotel’s Wedding Gold Package starts at Php 80,400 for 100 guests. Unlike other package deals, additional guests aren’t counted per person, but by table: add Php 7,000 for every additional 10 guests. Package inclusions include:

  • Three-layered fondant cake
  • Decorated cage with pair of doves
  • Floral arrangements for the reception

5. Feliza Jazz Grand Pavilion

Up north in Malolos, Bulacan, the Feliza Jazz Grand Pavilion offers its venue for events like birthdays, weddings, and other special events. The rate card I found from one of their Facebook pages dates back a few years, so expect their prices today to be a bit higher than what’s listed here. These prices are exclusively for the venue only.

Couples can choose between two slots: the day slot (10:00 AM to 4:00 PM), or the evening slot (4:00 PM to 10:00 PM). If you’re having an evening reception and think your suppliers will need the better part of the afternoon to set-up, you might want to book both slots to keep it for the whole day, since your slot also includes the time it takes for your suppliers to enter before your guests do.

The prices in Feliza Jazz vary according to which function room you book. Take note that for each slot, you’re only allowed to open the air-conditioning units for three hours. If you’d like to keep it on for longer, each room has a corresponding air-conditioner extension charge per hour. Your options include:

  • Flordeliza Pavilion (250-300 pax)
    • Early setup (before your slot) – Php 2,000
    • Weekend Rate – Php 18,000
    • Weekday Rate – Php 16,000
    • Venue Extension – Php 1,500
    • Air-conditioner Extension – Php 1,500
  • Fleur De Liz Garden (300-350 pax, air-conditioners not available)
    • Early setup – Php 2,000
    • Weekend Rate – Php 13,500
    • Weekday Rate – Php 11,500
    • Venue Extension – Php 1,500
  • T.C. Hall (150-170 pax)
    • Early setup – Php 1,000
    • Weekend Rate – Php 14,500
      • Additional Rates Per Hall
        • Hall 1 – Php 5,500
        • Hall 2 – Php 5,500
        • Hall 3 – Php 5,000
      • Weekday Rate – Php 13,000
        • Additional Rates Per Hall
          • Hall 1 – Php 5,000
          • Hall 2 – Php 5,000
          • Hall 3 – Php 4,500
        • Venue Extension – Php 500 per hall
        • Air-Conditioner Extension – Php 500 per hall

Couples are also required to pay an additional incidental deposit bond of Php 3,000 and a caterer bond of Php 5,000. Both are refundable.

6. Bale de Angeles

Up north, the Bale de Angeles event space offers a large traditional intimate Filipino-style venue and a garden perfect for wedding ceremonies. Their prices were published on their Facebook page and were updated as of March 3, 2019, so the prices may be relatively more accurate.

Their air-conditioned function hall seats 200 people comfortable and is only Php 20,000 for four hours. However, if you hire their in-house caterer and have a minimum of 150 people, that rate goes down to Php 15,000.

Bale de Angeles also offers its garden area for wedding ceremonies. At Php 7,000, you’ll get to use the garden for two hours and have chairs good for 100 guests. For styling, flowers, and other ceremonial needs (here’s a wedding checklist to make sure you get all of your suppliers in check), you’ll have to provide that yourself.
